Barry Stevens has been presenting Benjamin Franklin since 2005. He was tending campfire while participating as a member of the First Virginia Regiment (a company of Revolutionary War re-enactors). Visitors to the campfire would address him as "Ben" with such frequency and certainty that he outfitted himself as this special 18th C. gentleman and actually began answering their questions! His education of Dr. Franklin has led him to read and study extensively on the life and times of this American personality. That study is ongoing and without end. It has taken him to locations throughout the Colonies known to Dr. Franklin and even to Le Procope restaurant in Paris, France. On a recent trip he visited the Bakken Museum in Minneapolis, MN to gain insight into the electrical experiments conducted by Dr. Franklin. This experience is constantly being referenced as he presents Benjamin Franklin to eager and responsive audiences.
Engage Dr. Franklin in a conversation and experience for yourself the fun of interacting with living history.
